The Wi-Fi Alliance and the Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig Alliance) today announced a new plan to work together on creating wireless technologies that will transmit data at speeds of 1Gbps or higher. The two organizations said they will craft a new wireless standard that relies on the 60GHz frequency band for high-speed data transmission. The standard will require that data sessions can be seamlessly handed off to standard Wi-Fi networks in the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. The organizations plan to eventually certify tri-band Wi-Fi devices that are backward compatible with previous Wi-Fi technologies. The organizations already share many of the same members. They did not say when the standard might be finalized.
